This programme is aimed at students with a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science. You will learn to master the theoretical foundations in this field and apply them in practical applications.

Computer Science is one of the most dynamic and expansive fields of science. In addition to having a deep understanding of the theoretical and technical foundations, professionals in this field must be able to apply the technology to challenging problems, and integrate it with other technologies. Applicants should have an adequate background in computer science and good programming skills.

Several elective courses

The first three semesters include not only core courses in theoretical computer science and programming, but also elective courses such as artificial intelligence, databases and data mining, the design and programming of computer games, information security, advanced computer graphics, and human-computer interaction. Most courses feature lectures in theory and techniques, which are applied in practical laboratory work. Some courses also feature projects and seminars.

In the final semester you write a thesis, either on your own or with a fellow student. The work may be carried out in collaboration with a company, or as a research project with the university.

Five specialisations

The programme offers five specialisations:

  • Visualisation and Computer Graphics
  • Artificial Intelligence and Data Mining
  • Computer Networks, Distributed Systems and Security
  • Embedded Systems
  • Programming and Software Methods

It is not mandatory to follow a specialisation – you may also tailor your own combination of courses, with full freedom of choice. All specialisations are offered in Linköping, except Visualisation and Computer Graphics which is given at Campus Norrköping.

Major computer science centre

Linköping University is home to one of the most important centres of computer science and engineering in Northern Europe, renowned for top-quality research and education. Science Park Mjärdevi, an incubator with 300 knowledge-intensive companies where many of our alumni are employed, is adjacent to the campus.
